A casi seis meses de su fallecimiento, hoy se reveló la causa de muerte del actor Verne Troyer, célebre por haber interpretado a Mini-Me en el filme Austin Powers de 1999.

De acuerdo al informe despachado por el Departamento de Medicina Legal del Condado de Los √Āngeles, y tal como informa el portal The Hollywood Reporter, Troyer muri√≥ a causa de un suicido, el cual fue descrito en el documento como una “secuela de una intoxicaci√≥n con alcohol‚ÄĚ.

El deceso se produjo el 21 de abril de este a√Īo luego que el int√©rprete fuera conectado a un respirador artificial tras ser hospitalizado en Los √Āngeles a ra√≠z de la extrema ingesta et√≠lica. Aquella vez, medios de prensa ya hab√≠an informado que la semana anterior Troyer hab√≠a intentado suicidarse en la misma ciudad.

A pesar que sum√≥ popularidad en la saga cinematogr√°fica del esp√≠a brit√°nico Austin Powers, el int√©rprete tambi√©n fue parte de otra exitosa franquicia: Harry Potter. “Verne era una persona extremadamente cari√Īosa”, apunt√≥ su familia horas despu√©s de haber muerto. “Quer√≠a hacer que todos sonrieran, fuesen felices y se rieran. A cualquiera que lo necesitara, le ofrec√≠a su ayuda”, agregaron.

En un comunicado difundido por el mismo portal, la familia confirm√≥ los episodios depresivos de Troyer: “Verne tambi√©n era un luchador en lo que respecta a sus propias batallas internas. A lo largo de los a√Īos lo hizo y gan√≥, pero desafortunadamente esta vez era demasiado. La depresi√≥n y el suicidio son problemas muy serios. Nunca se sabe qu√© tipo de batalla se est√° librando dentro de uno”, afirmaron.

It is with great sadness and incredibly heavy hearts to write that Verne passed away today. Verne was an extremely caring individual. He wanted to make everyone smile, be happy, and laugh. Anybody in need, he would help to any extent possible. Verne hoped he made a positive change with the platform he had and worked towards spreading that message everyday. He inspired people around the world with his drive, determination, and attitude. On film & television sets, commercial shoots, at comic-con’s & personal appearances, to his own YouTube videos, he was there to show everyone what he was capable of doing. Even though his stature was small and his parents often wondered if he’d be able to reach up and open doors on his own in his life, he went on to open more doors for himself and others than anyone could have imagined. He also touched more peoples hearts than he will ever know. Verne was also a fighter when it came to his own battles. Over the years he’s struggled and won, struggled and won, struggled and fought some more, but unfortunately this time was too much. During this recent time of adversity he was baptized while surrounded by his family. The family appreciates that they have this time to grieve privately. Depression and Suicide are very serious issues. You never know what kind of battle someone is going through inside. Be kind to one another. And always know, it’s never too late to reach out to someone for help. In lieu of flowers, please feel free to make a donation in Verne’s name to either of his two favorite charities; The Starkey Hearing Foundation and Best Buddies. Photo by @paulmobleystudio
